Chelsea , Thiago Silva Close To agreeing Contract Extension

Published

on

Chelsea are closing in on retaining the services of veteran defender Thiago Silva.

The Brazilian centre-back has been a revelation since his free transfer move from Paris Saint-Germain at the start of last season.

The 37-year-old was outstanding for the Blues in a 4-0 win over Juventus in the Champions League in midweek, clearing an Alvaro Morata effort off the line.

Brazilian outlet UOL reports that Silva is set to stay at the club by extending his deal until the summer of 2023.

Such a move may protect the club in the event that fellow defender Antonio Rudiger departs on a free transfer in the summer.

Published

on

Former Super Eagles’ Chief Coach, Christian Chukwu, has urged the Super Eagles to move on with future national assignments after crashing out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Chukwu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Tuesday that the Super Eagles should put the AFCON competition behind them and focus on qualification for the World Cup in Qatar.

“It is clear that our AFCON trophy chase is over. Let us come home, take stock and plan for our world cup qualifying encounter with Ghana.

“Judging from my personal experience as a player and coach, the boys brought in their best and did their best in the AFCON competition.

“They fought gallantly in each match they played.

“I am not happy with the red card given to Iwobi in the last match played by the Super Eagles as it should be a mere warning. He did not deserve a card at all,” he said.

Published

on

Former British world champion Joshua vouched for a rematch against Oleksandr Usyk after losing the WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight belts to the Ukrainian in September 2021.

However, new report reveals Joshua was set to accept a £15m deal to step aside and allow Usyk to fight WBC champion Fury instead for all the belts.

Responding to the speculation, Joshua said on the Undefeated Podcast: ‘You know what’s bad about all these interviews I see? I see interviews that quote what I said, I think to myself, I ain’t done no interviews.

‘Where did this person get this information from? I see people saying “AJ accepts £15m to step aside.”

‘I ain’t signed no contract, I ain’t seen no contract. As it stands, stop listening to the b*t until it comes from me.

‘I’m the man in control of my destiny. I’m the man who handles my business. I’m a smart individual and I make calculated decisions every step of the way.

‘Don’t listen to the bt from other sources. If I tell you something then you know it’s real.’
